The main street of Palm Springs is adorned with promotional banners, some of them superimposed upon holiday decorations. I use one of these illuminated banners to symbolize a time of festivity. The banner itself promotes the “Fabulous Palm Springs Follies,” a local vaudeville show. I made this image at dusk in order to abstract the banner itself, and only imply its cartoonish character. The glowing orange, yellow and red holiday lights, forming a flag-like bunting as well as a star, dominate the image at this time of day. The sun has already set, yet the night has not yet begun. Storm clouds, sweeping over the neighboring mountains, frame the banner, while an array of palms and a nearby hotel add local context.
